    Every saint's got a past
    and every sinner got a future
    We've all got a story to be told
    And one that is yet to unfold
    The snapshoot you see of me today
    Is just that a momentary glimpse
    Cause I am constantly evolving
    Changing into a better me everyday
    So don't judge the unfinished project
    I am a masterpiece in the making
    I am just steps away from greatness
    I dare you to take the limits off
    And watch me evolve into the perfect me
    And even then I might not live up to your ideal
    Cause I refuse to fit into the box you have created for me
    Only one person has the right to judge me
    So until you have heaven or hell to put me in
    Come on and join my pursuit of greatness
    Or stand back and spectate while I rise
    cause with or without you I shall succeed
